Scripture: Romans 5:18-20

1044753.large

Observation: In life we often talk about either our actions not affecting others or we over emphasize their affect. In this passage, Paul really highlights two people (Adam & Christ) and how their actions affected everyone! I wonder if Adam had a ‘do over’ would he have still chosen to eat the forbidden fruit? We read all the time about people who, after the fact, are regretful for their choices and actions but this takes this to a whole different level.

Application: Our actions do have consequences! Adam’s sin brought ‘condemnation for all men’ but because of Jesus and his death on the cross his ‘one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all.’ AMEN!

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for your obedience to follow the plan laid out for you by the Father to go to the cross and through your one act, I can now stand before our Heavenly Father justified!
